Game-Changers, Winners, Contenders and Clunkers

Jan 16, 2014

It was an exciting year for new technology, says Alex Hillsberg, a web journalist at Financesonline.com.

"The year that was gave us a bumper crop of devices to choose from," he says. "We believe it’s always good to round up the last year’s best and worst tech offerings while looking forward to this year’s previews."

Hillsberg measured several categories of new technology and labeled them game-changers, winners, contenders or clunkers in an infographic. Here are the highlights:

Smartphones
• Game Changer – Motorola Project ARA
• Winner – Apple iPhone 5
• Contender – HTC One
• Clunker – Blackberry Z10

Tablets
• Game Changer – Amazon Kindle Fire HDX
• Winner – Apple iPad Air
• Contender – Google Nexus 7
• Clunker – Microsoft Surface RT

Laptops
• Game-Changer – Asus Taichi
• Winner – Apple Macbook Air 13"
• Contender – Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus
• Clunker – Google Chromebook Pixel

Other categories include mobile apps and wearable tech. You can view the full infographic here.
